Of course, it could be done this way, but...

If you modify the shared global table you will automagically touch all
drivers which depend on this frontend. Usually you don't have the
hardware to test whether all drivers still work with the new settings.

I don't know how others think about that. I'd like to keep the drivers
as stable as possible. (Don't touch working drivers unless you can test
the modifications.) So I'd rather waste a few bytes and keep changes

How do others think about this issue?
